The Ultimate in Flood Barrier Technology

Rapid assembly & Easy to store

Fluvial Innovations’ flood protection products far out-perform traditional flood barriers such as sandbags. Floodstop and Floodblock barriers provide a robust and neat solution to the devastation caused by flooding for home owners, businesses as well as local authorities.

A proven, robust flood protection system.

Flood Defence Solutions

Unlike any other flood protection method our patented flood barrier systems Floodstop and FloodBlock offer a truly pragmatic solution to flooding.

Floodstop and FloodBlock modular flood barriers are more cost-effective and infinitely more reliable than ineffective sandbags. Sandbags leak excessively – we do not recommend their use for flood protection.

Why You’ll Love Floodstop & Floodblock Products

Highly Effective

Used around the world to protect homes and businesses from floods.

vector-fluvial-quick-sfi

Quick to Deploy

All of our products are designed to be quick to deploy for just one or two people.

Easy to Store

All of our products are very robust and stackable, making them easy to store.

How It Works

The barrier can be assembled to any length and be arranged to suit any direction and opening. The system can be rapidly deployed by two persons with ease. It is often used by construction companies or utilities to protect assets from flood risk. The flood barrier is assembled by connecting up the 1-metre long modular units using the universal key.

When in use the majority of the modular units actually fill with the rising flood waters, which combined with the weighted universal keys ensures the assembled flood barrier holds back flood waters. All units and keys incorporate hard-wearing gaskets to ensure sealing. For acute cornering or wall connection in a Floodstop assembly a Multi-hub unit is simply used.In the above set up a free board is required.

Used by British Telecom

Over the last few years, there has been a rise in the number of natural disasters, such as the severe floods that hit Cumbria, in the north of England, in 2015 and Northern Ireland in 2017. These incidents can be devastating to local communities, damaging homes but also threatening communications – not just for residents to make calls and use the internet, but for the emergency services. The hugely important job of restoring those communications falls to BT’s Emergency Response Team (ERT).

Day or night, 365 days a year if an exchange is threatened, members of the team are deployed to protect it. They work proactively – for instance, setting up Floodstop barriers outside exchanges to protect from flooding – as well as reactively, using high-tech pumps to quickly remove water after events like flash floods.

Rapid wall connection; no bolting required.

Flood Protection Products

A proven and effective flood prevention method, Rapid assembly & easy to store. 80-metres can be deployed in 90 minutes.

The barrier can be assembled to any length and be arranged to suit any direction and opening. The system can be rapidly deployed by one person.

How It Works

When in use the majority of the modular units actually fill with the rising floodwaters, which combined with the weighted universal keys ensures the assembled flood barrier holds back floodwaters. All units and keys incorporate hard-wearing gaskets to ensure sealing.

For acute cornering or wall connection in a Floodstop assembly, a Multi-hub unit is simply used.

The beauty of this patented flood prevention system is that no bolting to the ground is required. It also means that when the floodwaters recede, the pods empty themselves and become light enough to be carried away. They are also a much more cost-effective and reliable alternative to flood sandbags.

Protect your assets from flooding with Floodstop 650

Our 0.65 high Floodstop barrier (also known as Floodstop 650) is our newest barrier in the popular Floodstop range. As with all our Floodstop barriers, Floodstop 650 can be assembled to any length and be arranged to suit any direction and opening.

This system also has the capability to be assembled to our existing 0.9m high Floodstop barrier and multi-hubs.

Uniquely our each Floodstop 650 barrier has a connector moulded into the unit. By reducing the components required to deploy the barrier we are reducing cost and deployment time.

Suitable Terrain

  • Typical hard standings such as roads, pavements, pathways etc
  • Grass or soil, depending on undulations
  • Not recommended for use on gravel

How It Works

The flood barrier is assembled by connecting up the 1.2 metre long modular units. When deployed (specifically) Floodstop 650 requires 50% of the units to be pre-filled with water ballast.

The remaining units in the deployment will automatically fill with the rising floodwaters. All units incorporate a hard-wearing EPDM gaskets to ensure sealing.

For acute cornering or wall connection in a Floodstop assembly, a Multi-hub unit is simply used. In the above set up a freeboard is required.

Key Benefits

Flood insurance is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain, and most home and business owners are aware that they must take responsibility in protecting their properties from the risk of flooding with flood defence barriers.

  • Rapidly deployable flood defence system
  • Can be assembled by one person
  • Not affected by strong winds when deployed
  • Highly flexible system
  • More cost-effective and versatile flood protection than sandbags
  • Self-balancing with no bolting required

  • Recyclable and reusable
  • Can be used as leverage to gain flood insurance

Protect against higher flood heights of up to 0.9

Floodstop 0.9m protects your worksite from the risk of flood. For rapid flood protection or reservoir deployment.

Our 0.9m high Floodstop barrier is a robust and effective flood defence system. The barrier can be assembled to any length and be arranged to suit any direction and opening.

The FloodBlock flood barrier system can be rapidly deployed by one person. The system stacks within itself when not deployed, ensuring the absolute minimum storage.

Our FloodBlock barrier provides a proven and effective flood prevention method. The barrier can be assembled to any length and be arranged to suit any direction and opening. The system can be rapidly deployed by one person. The system stacks within itself when not deployed, ensuring the absolute minimum storage.

How It Works

The FloodBlock flood barrier is assembled by connecting up the 1-metre long modular units using the universal key. The keys can be connected into any one of the four sides of the modular unit.

This allows any barrier direction. When in use the majority of the modular units actually fill with the rising flood waters, which combined with the weighted universal keys ensures the assembled flood barrier holds back flood waters. All units and keys incorporate hard-wearing gaskets to ensure sealing.

When joining the barrier to a wall or similar a FloodBlock wall connector is used.

Anti vandalism bracket can be incorporated to prevent the flood barrier from being disbanded by unwanted hands when deployed.

Divert & Deflect Waters Away From Assets

FloodFence is a water diversion system – for protecting (blocking off) a specific opening from flood waters we recommend the use of the award-winning Floodstop or FloodBlock flood barriers.

How It Works

FloodFence™ is a lightweight and quick to deploy water diversionary system. The system can be connected and deployed rapidly. It doesn’t require any ballast to be pre-applied.

This system is ideal for controlling flowing water, for example diverting or deflecting damaging water flows to where you want them. Uses include for burst water mains and control of surface water run off. Each individual FloodFence™ unit is 0.45m high and 1.0m in length. When connected up to other units the effective linear length of each unit is 0.91m.

Each unit incorporates a slim line base gasket allowing sealing to the ground terrain. Use is recommend on hard-standings.
